Transition Summer Camps Learn by Design.

The transition process from Junior school to Secondary school can be a daunting aspect for some young people and the principals of the Transition camp allows a smooth and effective introduction to the many changes that come with moving schools.
Transition camps allows the perfect environment to break down barriers, create the opportunity to meet new friends, explore their new school working environment as well as improving confidence.
Learn by Design schedule and develop a daily timetable of activities following popular themes covering various topics from space, climate change, family issues and super heroes. The added elements which include music and drama workshops engage the young people and allow creativity to flourish and often develop into the highlights of the camp.
Utilising our high spec sports science testing equipment we can deliver anything from one off booster days to established camps.
This year youngsters starting at Park View School in Haringey were given the chance to take part in a two week long summer camp as part of their induction into the school. Delivered by Learn by Design for the fourth year running the structured programme proved to be another huge success.
Split into teams the children take part in art, language, dance, drama, sport, modelling, teamwork and problem solving with each child encouraged to think and relate the activities back to the schools/education learner skills targets enabling students to become:
> Independent enquirers > Team workers > Creative thinkers > Self managers > Reflective learners > Effective participators
Learn by Design produces a Summer Camp booklet which enables each young person to record reviews surrounding their day’s activities, highlight future ideas and to show the progress they have made over the two week programme.
At the end the two weeks each group have the opportunity to display and present their work to family and friends demonstrating the artwork and skills developed – as well as discussing the emotional journey in preparation for secondary school.
Using our off the shelf workshops we can produce camps covering a wide range of topics – tailor them to specific requests by schools or organisations – timetable, staff, plan and provide a full report. All staff delivering the camps are fully trained and have Advanced DBS clearance.
